Re: Commentary at its best

I can't remember which Aussie commentator it was, I'd have to listen to the tape again.

On Martin Verkerk during his RG run : "This guy is huge and he could do a lot of damage on the grass at Wimbledon". At the time he never won a match on grass and absolutely hates the surface.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Commentary at its best

The worst bits of commentary I think are dished about Patrick McEnroe with his stupid sensationalism.

"EYE DROOPER!"
"GRIP IT AND RIP IT BABY"
"THAT WAS SICK!"

shut up Pmac and call it like it is.

All I need for commentary is Jason Goodall...maybe pair him up with Johnny Mac or Mary Carillo and boom...excellent commentary!

Re: Commentary at its best

Peter Fleming saying Marat Safin never should have lost the match against Goran Ivanisevic in 2001 at Wimbledon. Fleming seems to have been watching a match which never happened in which Marat was in charge.

It was fairly equal, actually, with Goran somewhat better and serving great and Marat a bit frustrated by that.

OMG that's embarassing. Where was he at Wimbledon one year ago?

I never knew Fred Stolle was such an oblivious nut! Nadal winning just two 5-set matches? Berdych from Croatia? Please, please, someone correct him.

Re: Commentary at its best

Pat Mac about Roddick "He has a great game for clay". Well he does for Houston this is true.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Commentary at its best

Pat Mac is a genius when it comes to Roddick, "He's got a good slice backhand, I want to see him it more" "He's a good volleyer I don't know why we aren't seeing him come in to net more" (taken from yestersday's match)

Pmac, what the fuck are you talking about? A nice slice bh!? Good Volleyer? I will fucking kill you Pmac, just because Andy is American and you love him don't let that blind you into thinking Andy does things well that he doesn't do well. Roddick is a capable volleyer at best and his slice backhand is neutrilizing at best...

Re: Commentary at its best

Yea basically but, they all do at ESPN. Mary Joe is the worst, why don't they ever get Martina to commentate? I loved it when she did it.

Re: Commentary at its best

What's great about Brad Gilbert is that where P-Mac uses the same phrases year after year, Brad Gilbert is constantly coming up with hilarious nonsense every 5 seconds!

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

Re: Commentary at its best

"Look how the ball accelerates AFTER the racket contact". Well, that would be a violation of basic physics laws from highschool, unless they are using "smart balls" with embedded microengines to accelerate after contact.

From Isaac Asimov's "Foundation".

Re: Commentary at its best

Chris Bailey keeps going on and on about Nadal's physique.

I remember watching the eurosport coverage of the clay season last year and it was "biceps this, big guns that, only 19 today this, really hot body for a teenager that".

If you've seen the way Bailey stares out the autocue I think you'll agree it's a bit unsettling...

Nadal's ripped Chris, get over it!
